Installing child seats in India is a pretty alien concept, even in this day and age. No matter how well educated the parent is, you'll rarely find them travelling with the baby restrained in the safety of a child seat. Usually, parents in India prefer to hold the baby in their arms, unaware of the fact that the child would be severely injured in the event of an accident.
Speaking about the need of child seats in cars, Rajesh Vohra, CEO, Artsana India said using child seats should be practiced as a good habit to ensure your baby's safety as well as peace of mind.
Car manufacturers in India have also begun equipping their car with ISOFIX points for car seats. ISOFIX points serve as an anchor point to securely fix a child seat. In case your car does not have an ISOFIX seat, you can opt for child seats that can be secured by using the seatbelts. For more on child seats, click here.
